Ohio health director visits Clermont

The Clermont County General Health District was visited by Ohio Department of Health Director Alvin D. Jackson, M.D., who had several compliments for the district.

Jackson has been making an effort to visit all of the state’s 129 health districts since he took office in 2007. He said his goal is to improve communications between the state and local departments and to seek out the “best practices” used throughout the state in order share those practices with other health districts in the state.

“I’m actually looking as I travel around for excellent models to share with others,” Jackson said.
